Google has received another setback after losing its position in China. China has decided to block many applications like Google +, Google Maps, Google docs, etc. The features are not accessible now and soon will be blocked as said by Google. The block is temporary or permanent is not clear and the block is said to have happened because of 18 party congress of communist party. This is shocking news because Google had a good hold over China as in India. Google maps have also been blocked by Apple for their IOS6 because they are planning to run their own maps over the phone.
China has blocked Google for the first time since February 2011; still country specific Google services can be accessed. China has many search engines but still Google was ahead of many. The time for which Google has been blocked is still not specified. Bing and Yahoo are also working in China but Google was ahead of these search engines. Google has added many features and has completely changed. Google maps, Google +, Google places are important additions and are also available over the phone. The changes made by Google are received with mixed responses within India also.
